Abstract
  • This paper documents a study of the potential for using Arc View, a GIS software program, to evaluate possible interactions between timber harvesting impacts and recreational uses of adjacent forest roads and trails. Data on hiking, biking and horse riding was used to define recreational uses on specific trails. Harvesting was modeled using basic stand data: stand age, species and assumed rotation age. As a result of this study the author concludes that Arc View is a powerful, adaptable software program that is well suited to the evaluation of zones of influence upon recreation of management activities such as logging . In addition it was concluded by the author that for Arc View to be used to its full potential the input data should be descriptive of relatively small geographic units: in this case forest stands and trail segments.
